The Yuck Show

    Listen

    Farts. Flies. Maggots. Worms. Earwax. Poop. All of these things gross us out, but the science around them is really facinating! On this episode, we’ll climb down into the sewers of Pittsburgh with people who are used to wading through feces, we’ll meet a man who ate worms on purpose, and we’ll hear from scientists about some of the most puke-worthy parts of their jobs. Plus, why is it that we feel disgust in the first place? 

    Get ready to be grossed out as we celebrate the joy of yuck.
